"The principle of consilience, or the unity of knowledge, infuses this conversation between biologist E. O. Wilson and poet Robert Hass. . . . The eminent duo explore echoes and parallels in their respective fields with eloquent concision, from Wilsons advice to poets ("Colonize science") to Hasss musings on the interplay of selfish gene and social imperative in imagination" (Nature).
